Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Chattahoochee Vall

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Chattahoochee Valley is an opportunity for a volunteer to mentor youth in our community. The volunteer will be able to expose the child to things they may not otherwise have the opportunity to experience, such as a trip to the museum or a walk along the Riverwalk. The Community-based mentoring program involves spending 8 hours a month with a youth.

We also have a Site-based mentoring program for volunteers that involves matching a volunteer with a child at either a local school. For the school sites, the mentor will visit the site of the youth and mentor them 1 day a week for 1 hour. Our Site-based program involves spending 4 hours a month with a youth.

We have children on our waitlist who are waiting for a positive role model. Please consider being that Big Brother or Big Sister to positively impact a child's life.
